Lemon Berry Cheese Cake Muffins

These little  Lemon Berry Cheesecakes are a wonderful and satisfying treat.  They are an S portion on the Trim Healthy Mama diet and a perfect low carb, sugar free dessert.  They really make you feel happy.  It is hard to believe you are loosing weight with these wonderful desserts… and yet you can.  This recipe makes 24 muffins; enough to have some to enjoy now and to put a few in the freezer for later.

Put cream cheese, eggs, vanilla and sweetener  into a mixing bowl.  Wash and grate 1 medium lemon and add to the mixture.

Juice the lemon and add the juice to the cream cheese mixture.

Mix with mixer until creamy and smooth.  Spoon evenly into 24  paper lined muffin tins.

Bake at 350 for 35 - 40 minutes. Remove from oven, cool and then chill.  Once chilled top with sour cream topping  (see bottom for recipe) and berries and serve.
